Product description

Eastar™ copolyester MB002 has been tested for FDA/ISO 10993 and USP Class VI Biological Evaluation testing after Gamma and EtO sterilization. It is a resin specifically developed for extrusion blow molding containers in medical applications where aesthetics such as high clarity and gloss, coupled with high toughness and chemical resistance, are desirable. Compared to many commonly used materials, Eastar™ copolyester MB002 runs on most standard processing equipment with broader processing conditions, and its toughness and melt strength enable blow molding of larger containers with greater design flexibility. This product meets the biocompatibility requirements under FDA/ISO 10993 and USP Class 6, Plastics.
